Foobar 2000 is considered the audiophile's media player. It's supposed to have great sound (ASIO capabilities), and has infinite possibilities on customizing the user interface. I haven’t played with it yet, but know I’m going to use it sooner or later. It’s freeware.

I have been using Winamp for about 6 months. The free version is pretty simple to use out of the box, and with directsound2 for the output, it sounds great on my stereo. It’s not perfect, but nice for free.

It's a great way to go.

I have been using winamp for shn files and itunes for mp3s and just spent another Sunday looking for an-all-in-one audio player (one that handles my mp3s and ipod along with being able to play shn, flac files and the like) with little luck.

After all my research I think I am going to give winamp a month as my sole player and see how it works out.

Though I just checked foobar 2000 and even though it looks very appealing it doesn't appear that it handles shn's either. Foobar2000 Audio formats supported: MP1, MP2, MP3, MP4, MPC, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC / Ogg FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, AU, SND, CDDA, WMA.

I see that a shn add-on is available for windows media but the reviews I have seen are not very favorable.

Also, I am trying jetblue by cowon; does anyone have any experience with this app?

Any other ideas?
